Hey guys, I already posted some pics of my XJ after the lift, but thought it might be helpful to start a build thread on it. Seeing what others are doing to there XJ's has been so helpful. Enough talk, here's the build so far:
4" lift (3" RC Series II/full springs, day later added 3/4" spacer/adj. shackles-thank you to Jason @RC) Used lots PB blaster, no broken bolts. Did a TC drop, no vibes...feeling lucky there.
265/70R15 tires-MT Classic Locks 15x8
They store nicely onto the factory skid plate.
Detours Lite Bar
Switches(one for front bumper, one for roof rack lights-future)
Replaced rusted screws...trying to eliminate rust in general.
Installed front bumper fogs(JK). I was inspired after seeing this done on pyrotyro's rig. I sourced these through Quadratec, they are a direct JK replacement. Drilling the 3 1/4" hole was the hardest part.
Light switch for bumper fogs.
Front Diff. Guard (4 X Doctor)
New Stereo install.
Pacer Flexi-flares. Needed a little more coverage. They don't look bad, but I already ordered some Rusty's flares, looking to visually open -up the wheel well.
Leather wrap steering wheel...feels great (WheelSkins). I also covered the shift handle in the same perforated leather. I will also do the transfer case and e-brake levers.
Custom color center dash trim...helps break up all the grey.
-New exhaust (help me pick one). I want to change out the header down pipe, and get rid of the restriction.
-Rear Disc. conversion (Teraflex)?
-Locking diffs...saw some ARB demos last night, real impressed.
-Surco roof rack
-Roof mounted spare.
